Australian Expatriate Consultancy Services
An expatriate assignment is a significant investment and it is worth ensuring that both the expatriate and the company value the experience.
For any company or organisation an expatriate assignment usually represents a considerable expense - in terms of time, effort and money. It is in the interest of both the future expatriate and the company/organisation to ensure that the expatriate (and any accompanying spouse or partner) receive appropriate briefings prior to commencing their overseas assignment. Similarly, particularly from a tax perspective, expatriates should receive taxation and financial briefings prior to their departure from Australia and prior to returning to Australia.
Exfin can arrange for expatriates to receive detailed briefings, either individually or as part of a group, from consultants with qualifications and experience across a broad range of disciplines focussed on the needs of expatriate Australians - including tax and international retirement planning. Importantly, most consultants have actual personal experience as expats in locations ranging from Europe and North America to developing countries in Eastern Europe and Asia.
Topics that can be addressed in presentations and consultations include the full gamut of financial and other topics covered in this website, as well as a range of HR matters focused mainly on the priorities of the first time expatriate and their family. These include children’s education, access to medical facilities, housing and some of the keys to fitting into foreign environments and making cultural adjustments. A high-level list of the issues that might need to be considered by the employer and employee in the context of a "normal" overseas assignment are contained in the slides below. Briefings may still be relevant even where individuals work remotely overseas on an individual basis - particularly since they will probably lack in local "support".
Time and cost effective presentations and materials can be constructed that meet the requirements of virtually any organisation anywhere in Australia or the world.
